Multiple sequence elements are involved in RNA 3' end formation in spleen necrosis virus.

The function of the poly(A) signal in spleen necrosis virus (SNV) is dependent upon the distance between the cap site and the poly(A) site, while the function of the SV40 late poly(A) signal is independent of the distance. Deletions in the SNV poly(A) sequence do not alter the distance-dependent function. SNV/SV40 chimeric poly(A) signals show intermediate… CONTINUE READING
